Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact A. M. Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a true listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you are working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where A. M. Appraisals comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A. M. Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

A. M. Appraisals will step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from A. M.
